My first try at growing this variety has been a disappointment. Not sure why but the beets are not sweet at all. Plants look very good, but roots lack flavor. I boiled and the color ran out so maybe roasting would be better?

I had this beet in Italy and it was delicious. I had to have them in my own garden. Over 20 years this is the marker by which we judge every other beet. Great greens. This makes the absolute best pickled beet. We grow these all spring and then again in the fall. Through the winter we have the pickled beets in salad. Beautiful inside and lovely outside. Roasted, pickled, boiled, sauteed always sweet and delicious. This is a great beet.

We have grown many types of beets in the past, but these came up so strong! We usually over plant to insure germination, but with franchi seeds, we planted to stand with 2 year old seed and 125 out of 130 came up, most with 3 or more at each site! Strong seedlings. Wonderful,sweet, tender beets perfect for roasting.
